    I read a thread about someone finding their bed bolts had loosened up and I think I am having the same issue. I went 4 wheeling on the beach and heard this banging noise and when I turned around to look the bed seemed to be bouncing around. I recently installed d-rings on the front bed bolts so those are tight but didn't check the others. I'll have to check them when I get home to my tools. Are there any other bolts underneath the bed that need to be checked?

    Hey guys, i have also experienced this strange noise. After some looking around i found that the whole front end of my box was shaking about 1/8th of an inch when i would get up to speed. My bolts were all tight....against a metal bushing under the washer.. not tight against the bed floor. I think that the box might of wore away in between the metal frame mounts and the composite box material, causing the box to sink enough that the bushings would bottom out the bolts before the box would. To stop the noise and just took out the bolts and removed the bushing completely and tightedned the bolts down right on the box. i know this probably isnt the best fix for the problem but it is working for now, hope this helps!
